Education experts The Knowledge House provide outstanding resources to outstanding teachers to make sure you have the time to concentrate on teaching. Created by expert history teachers, we look to reduce the workload in your busy schedule by creating ready-to-use resources. Each of our lessons are carefully planned to meet the exacting standards of the new Edexcel GCSE 9-1 specification using the Hodder and Pearson textbooks. However, neither textbook is necessary for the completion of these tasks. Our lessons follow a unique format. Each lesson is linked to a sub-chapter of the Edexcel Pearson textbook. This lesson links to Chapter 1.1: Crime, punishment and law enforcement in Anglo-Saxon England All sheets to be printed out at the beginning of the lesson. Each student then works the way through the sheets at their own pace. Each worksheet comes with extension tasks to stretch the MABLE. Unfinished tasks can be completed for HW and feedback. Exam questions can be completed for homework. It is recommended that no longer than two singles or one double lesson is sent on each sub-chapter. This allows the incredible amount of content to be completed quite comfortably through year 10 and 11. The four topics for GCSE history requires approximately 60 sub-chapters to be covered (Paper 1= 23; Paper 2 (A) = 9; Paper 2(B) = 12; Paper 3 = 16). This breaks down into 60 double lessons. For a school that has three 100 minute doubles in a two-week cycle, this allows for the course to be covered in by February-March, while still allowing for lessons to go through exam practice and missed lessons for a variety of reasons. This system has been tested by our history expert in a mixed ability class, with the course finished by February half-term. Please email info@theknowledgehouse.co.uk if you have any queries, questions or comments. We would be happy to arrange a call to discuss how you can use these resources to allow you to do what you love… TEACH!!
